How to make better pictures using Photoshop and Photoshop Elements

Working with digital photographs in raw format isn’t just for pros. Today, point-and-shoot cameras can capture images in raw format, giving shutterbugs of all stripes additional control and editing flexibility for richer, more vibrant photographs. If you’re ready to learn how you can use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Photoshop Elements to make the most of your camera’s raw capabilities, this book is the place to start. Author and photographer Ben Long introduces you to the raw format, explaining when it offers advantages over your camera’s default options, and then shows you how best to use it. In this book, completely updated for Photoshop CS4 and Photoshop Elements 7, you’ll learn:

  • How your digital camera captures and stores data
  • The pros and cons of working with Camera Raw data versus standard JPEG files
  • How to sort and process images using Camera Raw in Photoshop Elements and Photoshop
  • Basic Photoshop and Photoshop Elements editing techniques, such as adjusting for exposure, brightness, contrast, and saturation
  • How to work with the Camera Raw histogram to improve the color and tone of your images
  • Great techniques for shooting to get the best from the raw format

Synopsis:

Not long ago the Raw format was limited to high-end digital SLR cameras–which meant you pretty much had to be a professional (or at least quite serious) photographer to take advantage of it. Not so today. Now that Raw is included on even the simplest point-and-shoot cameras, shutterbugs of all stripes can start taking advantage of its greater editing flexibility to produce better final images. This guide is the place to start. In these pages, veteran author Ben Long begins at the beginning, explaining exactly what Raw is and why photographers should use it. He then describes the theory, shooting, and image editing practices needed to work with Raw files. Ben also provides an overview of software used to convert raw files and a thorough explanation of how to use Photoshop Elements to edit Raw images. Some cool Camera Raw tricks, tips for shooting for Raw format, and a glossary of important terms round out the offering.
